MASTERS SCHOLARSHIP AT UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD

This scholarship is for studies at St Anthony`s college University of London. This will allow St Antony’s to admit some of the best African students irrespective of means and will add immeasurably to the diverse and intellectual character of the College. This is part of a joint initiative between Eni & St Antony’s College to invest in and strengthen African leadership.


St Antony's and Eni are equally keen to provide encouragement and where possible, structured incentives for Eni Scholars to continue their studies or find useful employment back in their home country after graduating from Oxford. Discussions about this are on-going and scholars will be informed of relevant contacts and partnerships as they emerge.
